Hiroshige (1797-1858) did several series of the "53 Stations of Tokaido". This scene is from one of the series and it has that marvelous blue transitioning from deep saphire to light blue. I also like the diagonally winding road with the tiny figures diminishing into the horizon. Signature of the artist lower left, censor seals upper right next to the banner. Beautifully matted in raw silk and in an oriental style frame. Most likely Edo period.

The image area is about 13 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches. Frame is 21 by 16 inches. Very good condition. Color is good.

A simply beautiful antique Hiroshige Tokaido woodblock.
